Even though I am an introvert, I can see the benefit of having others around. It’s especially important when you’re working toward something. The benefits I’ve seen are:
- someone working alongside you, feeling your pain.
- someone to call you out when you’re not doing the work.
- someone to share victories with and encourage you.
- someone to challenge you when you feel like you’re work isn’t paying off.
- someone for you to challenge or maybe even compete with.
That being said, I really appreciate each one of you checking in. I love seeing your successes, struggles, and encouragement. I love doing this challenge with you!
My Monthly Weight Loss Goals
72 oz water a day: I’ve been really good at tracking this week, but not so good at getting enough. I’ve only managed to hit my goal twice this week, though I’ve had 56-64 oz on the other days.
Exercise 5 days a week: I got this goal completed this week with 2 days of Jillian and 3 days of my C25K. I had been putting off my 20 minute run for at least a week and finally finished it this week and it felt great!
Eating good size portions: I did good on this every day but Friday. I think I let some stresses decide my eating and it was not good. I picked back up the next day with some better habits.
Total weight lost this week: 2 pounds. This puts me at 4 pounds toward my 15 pound total. I have 11 more pounds to lose in 8 weeks, which is daunting but totally doable.
How did you do this week?
